Soft Hearted

The fåha is the soft, juicy kernel of a brown, fallen coconut that is considered to be a treat by many people. It can be eaten as it is, but many people like to freeze it and eat it like tropical ice cream.

Because the fåha is so soft, some elders use the word symbolically to describe a soft hearted person.

One lady talked about how her ten-year-old son would cry whenever he would see her kill a chicken for their lunch or dinner before the war when people raised or caught their own food.

"Pareho ha' nåna yan mamuno' hao taoato!" "It's the same as you killing a person, mother!"

She said, "Korason fåha ayo." "He has a heart of fåha."
